Rita Lee Chapman was born in the UK and migrated to Australia in her early twenties. It was only when she retired to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland that she wrote her first novel “Missing in Egypt” Book 1 in the Anna Davies Mystery Series.
“This fulfilled a lifelong ambition for me. In primary school I wrote long stories but since then my writing had been restricted to business correspondence, press releases and letters home to my family!
My second book Winston - A Horse's Tale is the story of an Australian horse, Winston, told by himself. It tells of his adventures and experiences as well as those of other horses he meets along life's way. It was the book I had to write.
Dangerous Associations was my first foray into crime mystery.
My latest book, Missing at Sea, is Book 2 in the Anna Davies Mystery Series.

We all make mistakes in our lives, some of us are very regular in making them and some are not. Sometimes the mistakes are something that can be easily rectified. However, there are times when a single seemingly umimportant mistake ends up almost ruining your life. And that is what happens to Cathy in Dangerous Associations. Her husband, who she married for love, starts cheating on her. She divorces him thinking that would be the end of it. But he soon turns to drugs and a whole nightmare unfolds for Geoffrey, Cathy and Rob.
The story has a good concept and good character definition. The characters are well placed and easy to relate with. The language is not abrupt. It is good enough to go with and smooth. However I have my reservations about the flow of the story. Most of the story is from Cathy’s point of view. But right in the middle, out of nowhere, Geoffrey’s point of view comes. Even another character’s story is shown right in the middle. They were relevant to the story, of course. But because of the abrupt change in story perspective, the flow breaks considerably. It could have done as alternate chapters from each perspective so that there is a uniformity in the flow.
Overall, the story was good. Just apart from the flow and therefore, the style of narration, I loved the story and the plot. It is really engaging and exciting till the end.

This book is well-written, with a plot that's both believable and moves at a nice pace for the genre. The characters are well-rounded, and the main character is someone easy to like and sympathize with. I should warn you though that the book contains scenes which some readers may find upsetting.
